  1. I hope to make the conference. As a male survivor (drugged and raped by a female acquaintance), I want to thank you for mentioning MaleSurvivor and the conference on your blog.

    The organization and its online forum are a great resource and haven for survivors and those who love them.

      Hi James,

      It is a wonderful and much needed organization. I think it is important to acknowledge resources for male survivors of sexual assault to help decrease the stigma that may prevent some from seeking help.

      I’d love to hear your experiences if you do get to attend!
